According to Balluff (Florence, KY), its new ultrasonic sensors are perfect for distance measurement or position detection of granules, fluids, and powders. These sensors measure
fill levels, heights, and sag without making contact as well as
count and monitor the presence of objects. They are extremely versatile, operate independently of color and surface finish, and are not affected by transparent objects that generate
strong reflections, says the company. Because they are not
affected by dust, dirt, and steam, they are the ideal choice for
critical applications. Balluff ultrasonic sensors are available
in a variety of form factors and output types. With detection
ranges that extend from 20 mm to 8 m, their high resolution
and small blind zones ensure extreme precision.
